a Carfax report will report the vehicle's area of origin, isn't that right?

As I recall, the full report you buy lists the state where the car was first titled or registered, and may report subsequent titles and registrations. The free flood report link only returns the number of records found, and if the car was reported to have flood damage. I wouldn't depend on the report exclusively, but if it shows a hit for flood damage, that's good information.
